As to the etymology of the word, don't laugh... but I had always thought
I had invented it myself. :) Or rather, my daughter.
Seriously, though, I had never heard it used before I started saying
it. Many years ago when my youngest daughter was around 2 years old and
still trying to master this whole "talking" thing, she would say
something "bork" instead of "broke." My wife and I thought it was cute
so we started saying it too (I know, I know: way to reinforce a bad
habit) and I've said it ever since. A few years back I heard/read
somebody else use it and thought "Hey! That's my daughter's word!" :)
And yes, my daughter is all grown up now and says "broke" like she's
supposed to. However her mom and dad still can't get away from saying
Back on topic, I'll just say that apt-get has become more troublesome
lately for me, so I've gone back to yum (still using atrpms.net
repositories as well as others) and things seem to be working much
better. A few things about yum I don't care for (like its speed,
refreshing its pkg lists at every invocation) but it does seem more
reliable than apt-get lately. That said, doing a wholesale upgrade to a
dedicated system like a Myth box is probably a bad idea unless you
understand exactly what is going to be upgraded... and likely "borked."
